Tareefan – It’s Time For Role Reversal – Veere Di Wedding
The first song from the movie Veere Di Wedding was released few days ago and it is soon catching on. The song is called Tareefan and it is sung by Badshah. The leading ladies of the film Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania not only are seen lip syncing the male singer but also doing some major role reversal. These girls are seen doing things like taking out a number of boys for a ride (pun not intended), buying them drinks, checking them out and having a blast doing so. This is actually a kind of a satire and it speaks volumes (without saying anything) about how women are objectified everywhere.
The song is composed by Qaran and is penned by Qaran, Rupin Pahwa and Badshah. This slow dance number maintains its pace throughout the song and has some interesting beats going on in the background. The lyrics are no different than any other peppy song but the interesting part is that the girls are saying this to the boys. Sample this,
Kaanon mein ik dil ki baat sunawan ni
Tainu hassda vekh ke
Jag nu main bhul jawaan ni
This is usually how a boy talks to his girl (or this is how we have seen it until now). But here, the girl says that she forgets the whole world when she sees him smile.
Or listen to this,
Baby mera mind tu kare blow
Baaki karein shine, tu kare glow
Here, she is saying.. no.. she is pampering him (referring him as ‘baby’) by saying that he blows her mind away every time. If other boys shine, he glows; meaning that he outshines other boys and wins her heart.
The song also has words like booty, sexy, nakhre and bewafa; but all these terms refer to the boys and that kind of like ups the ante in this men-women objectification war.
All the leading ladies are featured in this song but Kareena and Sonam have more screen time than the other two. But nonetheless, all of them look just fab in their roles and we cannot wait for the film to release.
The girl gang totally rules this dance number and raises the expectations from the movie a lot more. The song looks like a promotional video and is high on style quotient. The ladies were styled by Rhea Kapoor and the song is choreographed by none other than Farah Khan who has not choreographed any number in a long time. The film is produced by Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor.
When there is so much oomph behind the camera as there is in front of it, the song is bound to sizzle!
